According to the United States Coast Guard, the presumed remains of those who died on the Titan bathyscaphe were found. After the explosion of the underwater vehicle, which was en route to the site of the sinking of the Titanic last week, the wreckage contains «presumably human remains».
Parts of the ship «Titan» were unloaded from the Canadian vessel Horizon Arctic at the Canadian Coast Guard pier in St. John's, Newfoundland, the morning before. The U.S. Coast Guard announced on the same day that it had received wreckage and evidence, including «suspected human remains.»
Recall that as a result of the tragedy, five people were killed. The evidence will be taken to a U.S. port for «further analysis» by the Maritime Board of Inquiry, the Coast Guard said.
The head of the Maritime Investigative Council, Captain Jason Neubauer, pointed out that significant work needs to be done to find out the factors that led to the catastrophic death of the Titan and help prevent a repeat of such a tragedy.
ABC News informs that the Maritime Board of Investigation has contacted the families of the passengers of the Titan, according to a source familiar with the situation.
Note that the CEO of OceanGate, Stockton Rush, who died along with other crew members during the dive of the Titan bathyscaphe, was included by Wikipedia in the list of inventors who were killed by their own inventions.
